Rose Quartz History
Rose Quartz has a history in classical mythology. In the stories of Cupid or Eros, the god of love and attraction. It is said that Cupid “brought Rose Quartz from the heavens to bring more love and romance to mortals.”
The stone also has a history with Aphrodite, the “goddess of beauty and sexual love.” Who fell in love with the handsome mortal Adonis.
In the stories of old, Adonis was attacked by a wild boar. Some say the boar was Ares, the “god of war” in a jealous rage he turned himself into a wild boar and attacked Adonis.
Hearing Adonis’ cries, Aphrodite rushed to his side not before cutting herself on a rose bush. As the goddess held her dying lover in her arms, their blood dripped on the ground made of quartz, staining the stone a deep pink.

Rose Quartz Healing Properties
Rose Quartz can assist you in healing your heart of emotional pain and repressed emotions. Transforming your heart from isolation to trust and openness. Bringing you back into union with yourself and, therefore, the universe.
Love of others, love of life, love of the divine, and love of the universe. Loving what is external starts with loving yourself. Which fosters compassion, kindness, acceptance, peace, harmony, and balance.
I witnessed this in class with my students. The offering of empathy, compassion, and a willingness to understand rather than judge others.
When I was a teacher, I would gather all the students into a circle and have them share their stories. So they could learn and grow from each other. Teaching by sharing stories and our lived experiences.
During the circle, there was a particular student, "the joker," who would always interrupt the class. Judging and commenting on what was being shared. Poking fun at peers' stories but refusing to share their own.
One day, I brought in a huge chunk of Rose Quartz crystal. A talisman of love, for the centerpiece of our circle. The "joker" asked if they could hold the Rose Quartz and have it in their lap. I had no objections and asked if someone had something else we could place in the center.
I was amazed by the power of the rose quartz crystal. It created a space of harmony and transmuted a conditioned emotional pattern in this student.
There was a noticeable shift in their behavior. This student sat quietly, listened to his classmates in the circle, and would ask questions of the speaker rather than disrupt the class. There was a gentleness to the inquiry and a genuine interest in all the stories being shared.
They still passed when it was their turn to share, but the dynamic of the circle was dramatically different that day. It felt pleasant. It felt welcoming. It felt coherent. The student asked, “if I would bring the stone to class tomorrow.” I responded with “absolutely.”
